Simon Lauck Winchester, VA 090201-4

Signed Simon Lauck rifle from Winchester VA.
With Morgan's Riflemen during Revolutionary War with brother Peter.
Lauck purportedly received training from John Philip Beck in PA, Lancaster County.

A great rifle with great architecture. The Lancaster influence is quite evident.
Great Rifle!  This rifle appears to have been built by Simon Sr. patriarch of a family of outstanding gunsmiths.  The lock is of a period that would be more fitting for a rifle built by his son Simon Jr.  but this beautiful rifle seems early and the lock looks  replaced.
